They'll always have Paris

Multi-level terraces and parterre gardens exude French influence in Upper Arlington

Neat Bluestone pavers in a calming lilac hue cover the walkways, steps and the multi-level terraces.

The copper outdoor water fountain, or “moon pool,” on this terrace is a custom design that was inspired by the designer on a moonlit night when he was studying the outdoor space in evening light.

Landscape lighting helps set a dramatic nighttime stage for entertaining, a wonderful addition for homeowners who love to gather with guests.

The red awnings and colorful garden flowers give a nod to the couple’s favorite Parisian hotel, Hôtel Plaza Athénée.

Landscape stones, set in an even line, curve around this home's landscape, offering guests a refreshing tour of the yard.

An imported Italian grill and stone fire pit add heat to the cooking terrace. A nearby stone bench allows guests to perch in between the grill and fire pit, talking to the chef while still enjoying the warmth of the fire.

A cozy patio table is tucked away in the corner of this outdoor living space. Sheltered by red awnings, a feature that the homeowners copied from their favorite Parisian hotel, the table is a favorite place to entertain an intimate group of friends.

Garden art, in the form of the homeowners’ collection of antique statuary, finds the perfect place to be on display.

Capped with limestone and completely lined with copper, this the two-tiered outdoor water fountain trickles water from an upper level to a lower pool of floating balls that move freely about.

A romantic wrought iron fence opens up to this home and its spectacular gardens and terrace designs.

Wrought iron furniture sporting bright red cushions adds to this patio setting’s Parisian look.

A bistro-style patio table is tucked under an awning on a terrace off the main level of the home.

The patio cover design on this lower level cooking terrace makes it usable on days when the weather isn’t cooperating.

Wine glasses stand at the ready for an evening of fine dining and better company on this patio design.

A bluestone outdoor bench padded with plush cushions on the cooking terrace provides a comfy place to relax while chatting with the grillmaster.
